St Mary's and All Saints

We are a community with a current membership of about 370  adults.  There has been a church on this site since 1210 AD: though most of the current building dates only to the 19th Century.  It is situated in the Old Town in Beaconsfield and its members are drawn from across the town and beyond.  Our worship is typical, central Anglican worship with a robed choir and organist and the main act of worship each week is the Eucharist. We use traditional, modern and informal liturgies in our various services.  On the first Sunday of the month, we hold a Family Service at 10am which is informal and aimed at young families. Our music is led by a worship band and the order of service is projected onto a screen.  

Our church family is made up of children and adults of every age –every decade between 0 and 100 is represented on most weeks at our 10am service.   Generally we enjoy the energy of the young, the wisdom of the old and the diversity of us all. During the week, there are house groups that meet in the morning, afternoon and evening; weekly choir practices, bellringing, social groups, pastoral care, members who come and clean the church; prepare people for baptisms and weddings.   Our members work with a local Advice Centre, serve lunches at the weekly Luncheon Club, are involved with the youth clubs and reach out to the community in many other ways.

 

The Fitzwilliam Centre is located behind our historic church building and has a number of meeting rooms and a hall which can be hired for various occasions. Information can be found here.
